Greetings Terrarians!

May? It is seriously the end of May already? 2022 is certainly on an express train in terms of how fast time is flying by! That said, we hope you are as ready for Summer as we are... and it is shaping up to be an action-packed Summer indeed! What all do we have in store? Well, time will tell - but let's kick things off the right way with our final State of the Game update before Summer 2022 is here in earnest!

CHICKEN BONES JOINS RE-LOGIC

As our team is preparing to embark on the journey that will be our second game, we realize that there are some gaps in the team's skillset that we would like to fill - as well as the overall need for more quality folks in general. With all of that in mind, it is with great pleasure that we formally announce that long-time Terraria modder and core tModLoader Team member Chicken Bones has joined the Re-Logic family!

Chicken Bones (CB for short) is well-known in the Minecraft modding community, and he has a long history with Terraria and modding in general. Coupled with a strong background on the Technical/Tooling side of the coding world (a big need for the team moving ahead!), he will be an invaluable addition to the team. He has already been working hard alongside our core team, with a current focus aimed primarily on the development of tModLoader and tModPorter. Once full work on our second title begins, he will be part of the core development team that will be responsible for bringing that all together!

Please join each of us in giving Chicken Bones a heart-felt welcome to Team Re-Logic!

TERRARIA - LABOR OF LOVE UPDATE


The Labor of Love update is getting really close to reaching the goals and vision that we have in mind for it. Does that mean we are ready to give you a launch date? Well, not just yet - but know that we are feeling like it is getting closer and closer... so not too much longer, we think. Why do we call this update Labor of Love? Well, the award you all so graciously decided we were worthy of for one, but your support goes well beyond that. It has been a while since we gave a numbers update, and they are pretty staggering:

TERRARIA
TOTAL: 44.5 million units sold

23 million on PC
9.1 million on Consoles
12.4 million on Mobile
(Launch-to-date for PC, through Q1 2022 for Console/Mobile)


45 Million soon, and then... the road to FIFTY MILLION :eek:

That is just insane, everyone. It is this support - along with just how loyal and engaged each and every one of you are that enables us to be who we are and do what we do each and every day. To say it is humbling and amazing would be beyond an understatement. So, we will once again just say thank you - sincerely, thank you from the bottom of our heart. We don't take this lightly, and we really look forward to continuing to earn your support and trust in the years to come.


Moving on with our news, if you want a glimpse into what goes into the process of how we look at release dates vs ongoing work... well, @ChippyGaming has a breakdown of a recent chat Red had on Discord:


With that said, let's jump right in to more of what you can expect in the update, shall we?

In case you have missed the series of spoilers that have been shared by various members of the development team over the past month, we have compiled all of them for you below.

So all of that was shared in the last month alone... but wait, you want something new? Ok then...

You can now exchange your pet by using another Pet License! (They can now be purchased infinitely from the Zoologist)
Summoning Moon Lord with the Celestial Sigil now has only a 12 second summoning period instead of 60 second
Reduced the crafting cost of Celestial Sigil from 20 of each fragment to 12
Hive Pack now increases the fire rate of the Hornet Summon and increases the damage and defense penetration of Wasp Gun

Hello everyone!

May was one of the most productive months for TML development in quite a while! There is so much going on behind the scenes as we push ever-closer towards the release of TML 1.4. Want all of the details? Read on!

As mentioned above, we have had our busiest month in a long time, having merged almost 60 code changes - nearly double a regular month! This is all thanks to a large push from every contributor and the TML Team, so that we could deliver 1.4 in time for 1.4.4.

On June 1st, we will be changing the default version of tModLoader from 1.3 to 1.4. To be clear, this is not intended to be a full feature-rich “launch”, but rather represents the substantial step of TML 1.4 leaving Alpha and moving into a formal Continuous Release Cycle.


The current 1.3 version will remain available in a Beta Branch on Steam in order to allow players to continue to use any mods that are or do not update to the 1.4 era. Instructions on how to use this version if you so choose are located here > tModLoader guide for players · tModLoader/tModLoader Wiki

In addition, 1.4_soundfix, now known as "Sound Playback Reimplementation", has now been merged and we have eliminated the MergedTesting branch. This was holding up a few big mods, so hopefully, this will make life (and updating) easier for those teams!

Whew, that’s a lot of work done! Lots still to go… but the team is really enjoying the wave of momentum right now, excited to reach this key milestone with 1.4, and ready to get to work on what remains!


As always, you can keep track the current progress and such more in real time at tModLoader/tModLoader (But note that the completion percentage doesn't mean anything, because issues and PRs don't have weights.)


Developers who are willing to contribute may do so by doing PRs to the tModLoader/tModLoader branch. (See tModLoader/tModLoader)

CONSOLES - PLAYSTATION/XBOX/SWITCH

We spent much of the month of May with our heads down, focused on getting fixes for the 1.4.1 - 1.4.3 update out to everyone. As of now, these fixes should be in your hands on all platforms, with the possible exception of Switch/Stadia/Amazon, which are still pending review. If you missed what all was addressed, check out the link below!

TERRARIA 1.4.1 - 1.4.3 CONSOLE/MOBILE FIXES


What else have we been up to? Well, exploring a few things that we still need to get in your hands (we haven't lost sight of things like Splitscreen+Online Multiplayer)... and maybe dabbling a bit into the future. What could that mean? Well, have a sneak peek then!



index.php

The team is feeling pretty good about console at this point, but we know a handful of bugs and issues are still wandering out there in the wild. We have most of these documented (again, the best way to make sure your issue is seen is to file a Bug Report in the TCF Bug Section by pressing the button below!)

Neat! I've been following this game since around 2015 2017, and can't wait for 1.4.4! I haven't played melee in a while, and I'm ready for another melee playthrough with the weapon changes made in the labor of love update.

Remember that absolutely beautiful Coral build from last month's State of the Game? Well... about that...
I hope that does not mean that you are giving up coral furniture...
Besides, it seems to me that the chest has not been damaged?

Huge congratulations to CB! He's made many valuable contributions to Minecraft and Forge, he's made many valuable contributions to Terraria and tModLoader, and now he can make many valuable contributions to Re-Logic and their future games.
